MONTREAL — A $140-million investment has brought the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth’s glorious past alive again. In addition to the common areas and main guest rooms, the hotel has also renovated suite 1742, where John Lennon and Yoko Ono held their famous “bed-in for peace” for eight days in 1969. 

The suite’s redesign features virtual reality exhibits, archival TV and radio footage, and furnishings and artwork inspired by the historic event. Guests who book the 1,370-square-foot suite before the end of 2017 will be charged a promotional rate of $1,969 per night – a nod to the year the bed-in took place.
